  • A new bishopric was called to preside over the congregation of the White Rock Ward of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
    A bishopric consists of a bishop and two counselors and is called to oversee the congregation of the membership of a ward and administer the temporal affairs and spiritual and social enrichment of the group. The callings are non-paid positions and normally last several years. Bishop Steven Harris, with counselors Terrill Lemke and David Gartz, take the place of Bishop Steven Stokes, with counselors Robert Parker and Steve Painter, after five-and-a-half years of service in White Rock.
    The change was announced during last Sunday’s Sacrament meeting under the direction of the Santa Fe Stake President Michael Zollinger.

  • The Anderson and Roe Piano Duo, noted for their choreographed performances, will open the Los Alamos Concert Association’s new season 4 p.m. Sept. 28 in Duane Smith Auditorium.
    Elizabeth Joy Roe and Greg Anderson met at Juilliard and formed their partnership in 2002. They have since toured extensively, with notable recitals in Beijing, Seoul, Singapore, Italy, Vancouver, as well as several New York City venues, including Carnegie Hall.
    Their Emmy-nominated music videos have been viewed by millions on YouTube and they have appeared on MTV’s “Total Request Live,” NPR’s “All Things Considered” and at the Cliburn Concert Series, the Gina Bachauer International Piano Festival, and dozens of summer chamber music festivals.
    Playing together at a single keyboard, the duo’s program will feature selections from “An Amadeus Affair,” their recent all-Mozart CD, plus their own arrangement of the “Rite of Spring,” a celebration of the 100th anniversary of Stravinsky’s iconic ballet score.  
    The concert will also be the first opportunity for many in the audience to see the newly refurbished interior of the Duane Smith Auditorium.

  • Diverse work representing three cultures distinguishes the outstanding art of the 21st Annual Pojoaque Art Tour. Bike or GPS the way in a day, from Pojoaque Pueblo, through Nambé and Pojoaque, to San Ildefonso Pueblo.
    An artists’ reception will be from 5-8 p.m. Friday, hosted by Than Povi Fine Art Gallery (Exit 176 in Cuyamungue), features food and refreshments, Native Dances, a silent auction and a chance to meet th artists themselves! 
    The Pojoaque River Art Tour, a Northern New Mexico tri-cultural art experience, includes 16 stops and 24 artists and artisans.
The journey through Pojoaque’s inspired ambience can still be navigated in a single day.
    As they follow the tour, art-watchers will be rewarded with a wide array of paint and print-syles and media, including contemporary and traditional oil and acrylic paintings, mixed media, assemblage, monotypes, Sumi-e, watercolor, egg tempera, gouache and pastel.

  • While the walls are going up and the roof is raised, a lot of work is going on behind the scenes to bring together all the elements that will make the Los Alamos County Nature Center a new resource for the community.
    The Pajarito Environmental Education Center is working with professionals to design not only the exhibits, but also a new app that will be one of the highlights of the new center. The app will provide trail recommendations, and PEEC is calling on members of the community to submit photographs of local trails to be used for the app.
    The photographs should be of local trails and can be with or without people, though with people is preferred. Each photograph must be accompanied by the name of the trail and, if possible, when the photo was taken. By submitting the photograph, the photographer agrees to release it to PEEC and gives PEEC permission to use the likeness of the people included. Credit will be given to the photographer, so the photographer’s name should also be included.
    The new app, called Los Alamos Trails, will be available on every platform. It will allow people to enter criteria (such as “I want to go on a three mile hike that’s good for dogs and see wildflowers”) and get trail recommendations, guides, and views from user-submitted photos.  

  • The Pajarito Environmental Education Center is offering two Take Wing events that are offered to those who donate $150 or more to its capital campaign.
    PEEC is raising roughly $1.2 million through the capital campaign to fund indoor and outdoor exhibits and a professional planetarium projector for the new Los Alamos County Nature Center.
    On Saturday, there will be a chance to visit the numerous geothermal hot springs at the unusual Sulphur Springs. Husband and wife team Fraser and Cathy Goff will lead the tour and interpret the geology of the area, which they have studied extensively. The Goffs will lead another tour on Monday, this time through the Valles Caldera, including areas not visited on the regular Valles tours. The Sulphur tour will be from 9 a.m.-noon. For directions to the meeting location, call PEEC.

  • Teatro Paraguas announces its 11th season of Latino theater in Santa Fe, presenting six productions and two co-productions. The season includes four original productions by New Mexico playwrights.
    “When The Stars Trembled in Rio Puerco,” by New Mexico playwright Shebana Coelho, based on the oral histories collected by Nasario Garcia in the Rio Puerco Valley south of Cuba in the 1970s, will be presented Sept. 25-28 at the National Hispanic Cultural Center in Albuquerque.  
    The play was presented at Teatro Paraguas in April 2014 to enthusiastic audiences.  The play captures the joys and sorrows, trials and tribulations of rural life before World War II in New Mexico. Shebana Coehlo directs a cast including Rudy Fernandez, Anna Maria Gonzales, Amador Gonzales, Maria Cristina Lopez, Oscar Rodriguez and JoJo Sena de Tarnoff.
    “Confessions of a Mexpatriate,” a humorous and irreverent one-man show by Raul Garza, comes to Teatro Paraguas Oct. 17-19 after a successful run in Austin, Texas. Mical Trejo plays the modern-day, media-minded Mexican-American who wants to unplug from his American side and connect with his Mexican roots in the land of his ancestors.
